New Flamenco-inspired Guitars from Alvarez at Winter NAMM 2018
Our final video blast from the 2018 NAMM show in Anaheim features a pair of popularly priced instruments from Alvarez Guitars in their new Cadiz series, set to be in stores either in late February or early March 2018. Chris Meikle explains that the company spent a lot of time in Andalucia developing the guitars in their new line, which have a thinner profile more akin to flamenco models, and with bracing inspired by Ramirez guitars. The first guitar Chris shows has a Sitka spruce top and cypress back and sides and retails for just $399. A sleek 14-fret model with a single cutaway is Sitka spruce with walnut back and sides and an acacia bevel; that one will go for $549, another bargain!
